GFW: Jane Branco

without comments

Sunday June 6th – University of East London graduate Jane Branco‘s collection at Graduate Fashion Week 2010 was entitled “Kiss Me Deadly”.

KISS ME DEADLY has its inspirational roots in movies, especially the noir movies from the fifties and in the characteristics of the futuristic art movement that tries to capture the next instant of the movement. KISS ME DEADLY also aims to continue the movement of the body.

The fabric of choice is silk-jersey in soft tones of grey, orange, blue and white. The silhouette is elongated and elegantly slim and aims to accentuate the curves of the body playing with the symmetry of the body and balance of the proportions.

KISS ME DEADLY is a rich eveningwear collection that will explore sensuality through all the senses.

Rounding up our London Fashion Weekend experience…

We spoke to Eleni Sardi from in the courtyard who pointed us in the direction of Estethica, a BFC initiative sponsored by Monsoon which highlights sustainable and ethical fashion. “Sustainable is the way forward,” Eleni told us. “Recycling fabrics and materials, recycling silver and gold for jewellery, using fabrics that are natural and not going for things like polyester which aren’t biodegradable.”

Below: the Estethica exhibition space; sponsor Monsoon; designs by Merryn Leslie, Michelle Lowe-Holder, Nyonyo & Yayra, Partimi and White Tent, from the Centre for Sustainable Fashion at the London College of Fashion; Henriette Ludgate; Makepiece; Elvis & Kresse Arts.
